Well, I call it mocha. Milk is problematic for me, though, so this is the actual recipe. Add stuff to the mug in this order, to keep cocoa from sticking to ceramic in annoying ways.
About 7 shakes of salt.
2 tsp sugar.
2/3 tsp of instant coffee.
1 tsp cocoa.
Stir. Heat teapot. Add about 1/4 inch of water to mug, stir again to reduce lumps, then add rest of hot water. Sip at your own rate and temperature tolerance.
…It may seem like a lot of salt, but it lets you reduce the amount of sugar needed for it to taste sweet. And I don’t get much salt in my regular diet, so when the days are hot and muggy (which is most of the time!) this goes a long way toward making sure I don’t get faint the rest of the day.
I’m also caffeine-sensitive, so I pretty much only have ONE of these a day, in the morning, to get going. 🙂
Definitely going to need it tomorrow, given Hurricane Michael’s headed this way. Due to be in the area… sometime Wednesday. Joy.
(Seriously, Murphy, what’d I do to you this year?)
Aaaaaanyway… based on past experience, power loss is likely. So I’ll be pre-loading some posts for the next couple days. Meaning if I’m slow to reply to comments, it may be because no power, no internet, etc. So it goes!
